Segment #3: The Oakland Raiders, 2014's "Cinderella Team" of the NFL?
Raider Greg makes a bold prediction: The Oakland Raiders will prove to be 2014's "Cinderella Team" of the NFL. Mainstream media is ranking the Raiders as the #32 team in the power rankings. They are ranking head coach Dennis Allen as the 32nd best head coach in the NFL. Raider Greg points out that the Raiders coaching staff has been together for a few years now and the players have had time to digest the playbook. The Raiders have a lot of veteran players with huge chips on their shoulders after being under appreciated by their former teams. The Raiders team as a whole have a lot to prove, after hearing so many negative comments concerning expectations for the Raiders in 2014. He also make a specific bold prediction: "On December 7th, the Oakland Raiders will KICK THE ASSES of the San Francisco 49ers in the Oakland Coliseum!"
